    Symantics

    My computer imploded at work today, and as I was sitting waiting for Tech Support, I got to thinking....

    Our basketball team seems to be coming together and playing some pretty decent basketball as of late. Hopefully the trend continues.

    But which statement is true?

    How about a third choice, the team is coming together because of a certain Lucca that has been freed and is now threed?

    I voted B, by the way.

    not sure what you're talking about, Wes is still on the team, just not getting as many minutes as he used to. Wears number 12, too.

    Re: Symantics

    Wes appeared to pout last year a lot when things didn't go his way, whether it was losing or not getting the minutes or opportunities he thought he deserved. No one likes losing, but some fight harder while others pout and further hurt the team with an extreme example being Owens. Wes was no Owens, but I think his approach last year did hurt the team when he could have been a leader instead.

    With that being said, with a new season's start and hopefully some success this year Wes most likely wouldn't have been encountered with the same issues he had last year, including no injury. So I think he would have been a positive to this team. But if things would have been tough or if they get tough during the course of the year, then Wes would have made issues worse.

    Finally, I think Wes is a very good player but not sure if he's as good as we thought his freshmen year. Time will tell.
